25 years ago, in my college days, I worked for the City of Virginia Beach
in mosquito control. We raised and released mosquito fish - Gambusia sp?
They were very effective in controlling mosquitos in shallow, seasonally
I have also use common guppies from the pet store. Both fish are effective
if algae and other food is available in addition to larvae. I have seen
Gambusia flourshing and reproducing in water filled ruts in dirt roads.
